As a former librarian, Mr. Winky thinks you are being unfair to the volunteers at the Archive with your comment, Mr. Guyzilla. Our Emperor does have a history of being rather rude and potty mouthed.

Also to be taken into consideration is the fact that

1. Our Emperor makes so many posts, that his request may become buried in the forums
2. Many, many other people are also uploading files.

This is not an indictment of The Emperor. It is a reminder that the volunteers have been quite patient with his highness. He needs to remember that his subjects are

1. Only human
2. Volunteers
3. Deserving of some respect

Researching his posts shows the following examples:

* Here's one where the Emperor dictated a time frame for the volunteers to upload 10 files. The message states: "I'd prefer if you move them within the next 5 days."

Please move these to the classic TV commercials section: http://archive.org/post/412218/please-move-these-to-the-classic-tv-commercials-section

* Another time frame edict for two files

Please move to the classic TV section... within the next week, please: http://archive.org/post/412217/please-move-to-the-classic-tv-sectionwithin-the-next-week-please

* The Emperor desires his files moved within 7 days.

Please move to the trailers section, preferably within the next 7 days: http://archive.org/post/412213/please-move-to-the-trailers-section-preferably-within-the-next-7-days

* The Emperor is distressed about 12 files that had not been moved in 4 days. He gets a little potty-mouthed and insulting. It caused Mr. Winky no end of distress!

Items of mine that need moving - please move: http://archive.org/post/411888/items-of-mine-that-need-moving-please-move

* A commercial announcement

I uploaded "The Gorilla" and "Nel's Summer Camp". Please move them, and also, please move those commercials I uploaded several days ago: http://archive.org/post/412258/i-uploaded-the-gorilla-and-nels-summer-camp-please-move-them-and-also-please-move-those-commercials

Here are the commercials in question. There are at least 150 separate files uploaded on the same day. Not even Mr. Winky would want to do them all at one time.

**** Items to be moved to Classic Commercials sub-section - Part 1: http://archive.org/post/311156/items-to-be-moved-to-classic-commercials-sub-section-part-1

**** Items to be moved to Classic Commercials sub-section - Part 2: http://archive.org/post/311157/items-to-be-moved-to-classic-commercials-sub-section-part-2

**** Items to be moved to Classic Commercials sub-section - Part 3: http://archive.org/post/311158/items-to-be-moved-to-classic-commercials-sub-section-part-3

* In this instance, the Emperor wants instant satisfaction on the weekend: Twice. Mr. Kaplan politely asks him to wait until the volunteers can do it during the normal work week.

I just uploaded some public domain trailers. Please Move them: http://archive.org/post/411279/i-just-uploaded-some-public-domain-trailers-please-move-them


* More foul language from the Emperor. We are NOT amused. :-(

I Sincerely doubt I'm gonna get an intelligent answer, but..: http://archive.org/post/259880/i-sincerely-doubt-im-gonna-get-an-intelligent-answer-but

* Here, the Emperor begins to reduce his timeframe to immediate action from the volunteers. At least he seemed thankful.

I Just Uploaded another good episode of "The Trouble with Father". Please Move It. Now. Thanks: http://archive.org/post/405429/i-just-uploaded-another-good-episode-of-the-trouble-with-father-please-move-it-now-thanks

* Same type request. Less gratitude

I Just Uploaded yet another "The Trouble with Father" episode. Please Move It. Now. http://archive.org/post/404799/i-just-uploaded-yet-another-the-trouble-with-father-episode-please-move-it-now

* Abusive language aimed at the volunteers! Tsk, tsk, tsk

Huh, so you remove my post asking for my harmless blog to be archived: http://archive.org/post/313564/huh-so-you-remove-my-post-asking-for-my-harmless-blog-to-be-archived

* Rather tame, but still showing rudeness to people who do this for free.

Dude, I wasn't attacking any staff member of the archive whatsoever. I know they're busy. I go through CV's " This Just In" section every night looking for interesting films and shows that have been put up over the course of the day. I know The Emperor makes a lot of posts. I read them every night. And I know lots of other people are uploading files because I bookmark most of them to download later. I also know that the the Emperor isn't perfect. Who the hell is? I'm not.
But I will say this, in my opinion, that it is the uploaders contributing content is what makes me come back to this site, and the Emperor, as well as others here, have contributed many hours of content that's kept me amused and and interested for a few years now, and The Emperor has contributed a good deal of those files. What have you contributed to the Archive, Mr. Winky? I don't seem to recall any move requests with your name on them. I think that your remarks about the Emperor having doo doo on his soul are also unfair and I view it as a personal attack on this man. What did he ever do to you? I've noticed in your posts that you have done a lot of digging to find links to posts he made that bother you. It looks like you're on some kind of mission to make the Emperor look some kind of jackass. Yep, you really seem to have a problem with this man. What the problem is, I don't know nor do I give a damn. I'll take the Emperor's contributions over your pathetic hate campaign any day of the week. I stand by what I said in my post. And as far as anyone having doo doo on their soul, maybe you should consider giving yours a wipe.

Thou dost protest too much, methinks.

It's not a campaign of hatred. I don't know the man. He certainly doesn't need my assistance to look like a jackass. I think that was a Freudian slip on your part.

However, as someone who does a LOT of volunteer work in my community, I tend to side with the staff who volunteers over impatient and rude individuals.

Now go home and take a laxative. You write as if you need an enema, dude.

You definitely give the impression that you "volunteer" not because of any sympathy for the "individuals" but for the enjoyment of the power that you exercise over them.

You seem unaware that it was extremely rude to say that The_Emperor has doo-doo in his soul, and that it was bizarre, unnatural, and hypocritical to phrase your insult in such a childish manner.

In this situation, The_Emperor is the volunteer, and you are the "impatient and rude individual", because he is doing a useful service and you are making the snide and catty remarks.

If the "volunteers" who move the videos are to be above reproach because they are paid nothing, then those who upload videos should be even more unassailable because they are paid less than nothing for all the time they spend locating p.d. videos and transcoding them (and removing logos); I say they are paid less than nothing because they often have to purchase the movies and shows that they upload.

Your sophistry is eloquent, but flawed. Stay away from debates. You'd get trounced.

This MR-KY just appeared out of nowhere the other day and has bad manners to boot.
This reminds me of something that happened on another IA forum last year. That coward hurt several nice peoples feelings before the IA staff cut them off.
Can we get him to say ykniw-rM and dissapear? Then we can get back to the show that's already in progress.
PS. Your Highness, I'm in Texas this week and am trying to film the biggest smokestack I've ever seen. Unfortunaely it is miles away and they do not seem to want sightseers.

Considering what is usually referred to as a "winky", I think your screen name is most apt.

I didn't realize the depth of your affection for the gentleman. It's quite touching, but it is 2012 and attitudes toward that type of relationship are evolving. No wonder you're a guyzilla. I think your screen name is most apt.

Nice one! The conversation doesn't go your go your way, so you take a stab at someone's supposed sexual orientation! Wow! Yes, the attitudes toward that type of relationship are evolving. Your crack just proves you are an evolutionary throwback.
